Welcome to The Observer's Opinion Blog

Our Crowd is one of the first major expansion projects for the New York Observer Web site.

In the coming weeks, look for this space to take shape as a clearinghouse for the best opinion writing in The Observer and on the Web.

We’ll soon be ready to introduce it and describe what it is we are going to get done here. Subscribe to the Our Crowd RSS feed above, or sign up for our newsletters, and be the first to know when new stuff is happening here and everywhere on the site.
